    I corrected a bit in my follow-up.

    King Grayskull and He-Ro coexisting is a retcon. The only shared link Iím aware of is that Grayskull was pristine and white in both PoG and 200xís flashback.

    Filmation He-Ro and the Lands of Legend?

    So I just found out that Filmation worked on a Powers of Grayskull tie-in set in Preternia called He-Ro and the Lands of Legend.

    He-Ro had a radically different animation look, as did King Hiss....
  4. Could She-Ra 5.5s continue even if MOTU stops?

    Thereís speculation about Super7 contracting its MOTU offerings temporarily while Mattel regears the brand for the movie.

    In some ways, Iím surprised the PoP cartoon hasnít blocked vintage She-Ra...

    Reference appreciated! I wouldnít mind seeing the deco tower bands from 200x added.

    The lack of a jawbridge in favor of double doors is a neat touch.

    This might be a very fun custom if budget...

    Barbarossa Customs has the shackles/chains on eBay recast in a durable, bendy rubber similar to vintage TMNT accessories. He does a lot of customs in that type of material.

    But the model kits are vintage! :)

    So vintage that they appear to be based on older concept art!

    Shoving them into Preternia was a retcon but since we never got Powers of Grayskull as a line,...

    Theyíre $80 shipped through Paulmart.

    They almost certainly will hit retail but the colors and articulation may see changes.

    Look at how Mattel has been doing subtle variants in MegaConstrux.

    I wonít get mine until August but somebody on Facebook said itís as rugged as Mattelís Wrestling figures and similar to Vintage in weight.

    This is no mere adult collectible! Hooray!

    There are even some cartoon characters who make sense for this! Fangman, for one. He was abandoned at some point in the past prior to the construction of Grayskull.

    The ABS-like plastic (not just the glossy finish but the brittle, Lego/Transformers feel) makes S7ís figures weird for me.

    I think the most exciting 5.5s are He-Ro, Eldor, She-Ra, Shadow Weaver, and Evil Seed because they appeared in vintage MOTU media but never got figures, followed by Hordak. The others are novel but...

    Oh. For sure. Wolfar and Batomax and Jagu-R or something.

  20. The Three Terrors: Why didnít they make more of a splash?

    Hey!

    I have to say the Three Terrors fascinate me.

    The heads are oversized. The build is simplistic.

    The story tie-in is overpriced, behind a paywall, and the animation doesnít impress.
